Taken yesterday at the Great Central Railway Winter Steam Gala, this is 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' travelling at speed through the station, hauling a line of post-office coaches.

Since the weather was quite cold yesterday, it was great for capturing really impressive smoke formations!

Really like how you have captured the steam - nice pic. Have you used HDR to get the final result?

Nope - this is a single shot, processed carefully to maximise the detail, but no blending of any sort was involved. The Sony A77 is an amazing camera...
